For those who may have missed it in the main forum, SugarHouse planning to open their poker room in August, with 24 tables. Hopefully competition is good for the players and doesn't fragment the player base too much.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2013.03.18

Played at parx for first time.

Normally play at sands, used to play ac.


nice room setup. lots of cashiers for quick cashout and chips.

isolate so its quiet which is pretty good.


only bad thing i found is, it's too isolated, since i play table games too, i dont like how i have to walk to the other casino with no security and no cameras along the path.

the food options at tables are awful. 90% of their menu is finger food. which is kinda gross imo when you play cards.

Can anyone comment on the 5/5 PLO? Filled with professionals? Regs? Recs?

Although I agree with food option being sub-par, who has better food options at the table? Sands? Borgata? Except for some west coast casinos, i don't know of any 'great food service' at the tables.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2013.03.18

Not that I experience this directly, but I understood at Canterbury Park, it was possible to either

A. Have a tip held out by the cage and the player doesn't pay taxes on the tip (but the dealer does need to report it)
B. Tip the dealer later (player pays, dealer doesnt report, player can tip a little less for same in pocket to the dealer).

Of course the government preferred option is
C--pay taxes on the whole thing and dealer reports the tip.

Not sure about PA or other states or casinos.

Please stop talking about tipping (at least in general terms). If you want to inquire/argue about/wax philosophic about tipping, please go to the tipping containment thread in the main B&M forum where you will find the question has been asked and answered about eleventy billion times.

Is the Live Game Report broken on the Parx website? Nothing listed for the past day or so...

Yup, appears so. Still working through the bravo app and the bravo website, so I'm guessing it's a problem on the Parx IT side.

This. If you read the forum rules you'd see that discussion of tipping anywhere outside the Tipping Containment Thread is not allowed.

dinesh - Appreciate the help. Though next time report the post and we can come take care of it without making you the bad guy It also wouldn't have gone on for a week.

come on man seriously, just with like any game and any casino, you are going to have nights when the game is soft and you are not going to want to leave and there are nights where it's all regs, nobody really joins, we all mess around for a bit and the game breaks.

I noticed that 15-30 Triple Draw ran today, if anyone wants to try to get that going at lower stakes (like 5-10 or 6-12) let me know because that sounds like fun to me.

I don't believe they will spread it for less than 15/30.

I talked to the floor like a week and a half ago, they said if there's interest they'll spread it. But it's pretty much up to us finding enough players to get a game going. Unlikely I know, but I've always wanted to play Triple Draw but 15/30 is why outside my stakes.

Does that mean they will spread a 5/10 NL game as well if there is interest?
